The most celebrated city in the world at the time of Christ. It is said to have been founded B.C. 753. When the New Testament “was written, Rome was enriched and adorned with the spoils of” “the world, and contained a population estimated at 1,200,000, of” “which the half were slaves, and including representatives of” nearly every nation then known.

He had during these years for companions “Luke and Aristarchus (Acts 27:2), Timothy (Phil. 1:1; Col. 1:1),” “Tychicus (Eph. 6: 21), Epaphroditus (Phil. 4:18), and John Mark” (Col. 4:10). (See PAUL.) “Beneath this city are extensive galleries, called “catacombs,” which were used from about the time of the apostles (one of the inscriptions found in them bears the date A.D. 71) for some three hundred years as places of refuge in the time of “persecution, and also of worship and burial. About four thousand” inscriptions have been found in the catacombs. These give an interesting insight into the history of the church at Rome down to the time of Constantine.
